    THE PRODIGAL SUN
    _______:shades:_______

    Black...
    Birthright, or oversight
    The manifestation of my blackness
    Fill this page in measured drops
    Sun given powers illuminate my house
    Displaying energy of unimaginable radiance
    Worlds, entrusted to me align themselves
    Their very existence linked to what I bring

    Black...
    An otherwise dark existence
    May it light you up-
    Bountiful under that sun
    **** glorious too,
    Check it out...
    But don't stare with scorn,
    For the very thing which adorns me
    Is to be feared...
    That very thing ~
    Put upon me,
    Revered
